Delegasi.com-Komodo island, part of the Lesser Sunda chain of Indonesian islands, is the rugged habitat of the 3m-long Komodo dragon monitor lizard. Komodo National Park covers the entire region and is home to more than 4,000 dragons, and is made up of rusty-red volcanic hills, savannah and forests. Its surrounding waters of seagrass beds, mangrove shrublands and coral reefs are famous for diving.
Komodo’s marine life includes more than 1,000 species of fish, plus manta rays, whales and sea turtles. It can be seen from scuba-diving locations like Batu Bolong, on the north coast, which has a steep sea wall descending some 75 meters to a seabed. Another dive site is off Pink Beach, whose colored sands result mainly from microscopic amoebas with red shells. Loh Liang, on the eastern coast, is one of Komodo’s few settlements. Visitors can book hiking treks there, as the island has no roads or cars.//google
